All — Simple Things lyrics

Father left home when you turned 14. took the best, left the rest for the simple things. the simple things come easy when you've been used. tried every drug in the neighborhood. but nothing can change your mind about the simple things. the simple things come easy when you've been abused. life is cheap, money's free, these are what we call the simple things, desperate now, gun to your mouth, is death worse than life when you live for the simple things? the simple things come easy when you've no choice, it smells outside from the atomic tide, and you have no money and nowhere to hide. the simple things come easy when you've no voice. the simple things come easy, when the good things in life aren't free. I will try to protect you from within myself. let the simple things run their course. I can't trust my family and friends. its all around, they all want the simple things. the simple things come easy, if you believe. I'll draw my lines, choose my defense. when it all comes down they'll kill for the simple things. the simple things come easy if you concede.
